Best way to case...


this window. Ok, I couldn't upload due to file size... It currently has a sill that justs out and one piece of casing underneath cut back at maybe a 22 1/2 degree angle. kind of old school. How would I case this out completely? I was thinking just cut the casing for the sides square at the sill, maybe a slight notch on the inside edge for the sill. Or do I mitre all the way around and notch for the sill? Sorry it's vague, cant figure out to get my pic down to 100 kb or less.

Without a picture it's hard to help.

Hope this is the ticket. http://www.flickr.com/photos/78094035@N02/6847543826/

I'm thinking replace the bottom casing, run it past the sill 2 1/2" on each side. Run the side pieces down cut square on bottom (notched around sill, and mitered on top? Thx in advance for any suggestions. Tom

If you plan to leave the stool like it is, just cut the trim like you are going to picture frame, notch out for the stool and install the trim.

if you want it all trimmed out with your casing on 45s i'd pull off the sill and measure from the window to the outside of the drywall. cut and install build outs around the window then put your casing up around that.

You could try using rosettes on the corners and then cut in the vertical pieces of trim to take into account the little bit of overhang on the sill. I did that at a previous house but the sill extended past the trim so didn't quite have the same issue. Here's a (blurry) pic of it, but you get the idea.

Thank you all very much. I'll post pics when I'm done (if I can figure out how to get them uploaded). Now that i'm in trim mode, I was thinking about installing crown around my cabinets, but there isn't much nailing room between the top of the doors and the top of the boxes themselves. I've heard that it might be necessary to install nailing blocks for the crown. anyone know of an easy and clean way to do this?
